Am I the only one...?
I spent a very long but satisfying day yesterday driving to and poking around a costume shop that my employer uses in order to find pieces for "Macbeth" so I can start figuring out what pieces I'll make. This morning I went into my fabric closet to pull some fabric and wound up pulling almost everything out to re-order, re-organize and purge. It's not the first time I've done it. I do this before almost every new project. It seems to clear my mind and set me on a new path although it's really a terrible waste of time. I know what's in there and where to find what I want. Why do I have this compulsion to make a huge mess only to have to clean it up before I can start the real work? Does anyone else do this? And what am I going to do now since my new system isn't holding as much and it still looks like the stash threw up all over my bedroom?
